Dr. Miller was raised in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where her goal of becoming a veterinarian was discovered. Ever since she was a child she has loved the company of animals and has worked with them since she was a teenager.
She started to pursue her dream when she was accepted to Washington State University’s Honors College and majored in Animal Science. As an undergraduate she received numerous honors including membership in the National Collegiate Scholars, Phi Eta Sigma, and All American Academic Athlete. Following her freshman year, she was accepted into veterinary school through an advanced honors program and had the privilege of working with many different animals including cows, horses, wildlife, exotic animals, dogs, and cats. She spent three years on the WSU Women’s Rowing team, and participated in the PAC-10 and national regatta during her last two years.
Her athletic involvement, however, never interfered with her ultimate goal of becoming a veterinarian. In 2005 she received her Bachelor of Science in Animal Science from Washington State University and moved across campus to continue in the veterinary medicine program. During her second year of veterinary school she had her first class in veterinary dermatology and knew she wanted to be a part of that field. Through numerous externships in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, North Carolina, Washington, and Oregon she worked closely with veterinary specialists and greatly enhanced her skill in veterinary medicine, particularly in the field of dermatology.
Dr. Miller obtained her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from Washington State University in 2008. She then moved to Tampa, Florida where she completed a challenging internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Florida Veterinary Specialists. During her internship she developed her skills in veterinary dermatology by spending extra rotations with board-certified veterinary dermatologists.
Dr. Miller began her residency in veterinary dermatology with Dermatology for Animals in 2009 and achieved board certification in November 2012. She practices at the Salt Lake City clinic and loves being able to pursue her love of the outdoors activities.
Dr. Miller enjoys spending time with her clients discussing their pets’ dermatology conditions. She is able to offer progressive and extensive options to make their pets comfortable and happy. She takes pleasure in working closely with the family veterinarian to determine the most appropriate dermatologic care. Her own adopted Chihuahua, Maybelle, has developed liver disease and has taught Dr. Miller the importance of patience when caring for an animal with a chronic disease.
